Quantum computers will revolutionize many industries and will be powerful enough to break all commonly used public key cryptographic algorithms.
It is not a question of if your business will be affected, but when and how will quantum computers impact your day-to-day operations and product architecture.
We are thrilled to announce the third edition of our Applied Crypto Symposium, which welcomes thought leaders, academics and industry experts from around the globe to discuss:
In the heart of Silicon Valley, spend the day at the iconic Mountain Winery with post-quantum experts to learn how to stay ahead of the curve (elliptic or otherwise). Hear from leading industry voices including Brian LaMacchia (Microsoft), Michele Mosca (Institute for Quantum Computing), Harsh Kupwade Patil (LG Electronics Mobile Research) and cryptography experts like Marcos Simplicio, as they explore the implementation of potential quantum safe algorithms and what the future holds for cybersecurity.
Will these new ciphers come to the rescue when the quantum computer falls into the hands of the wrong people?

We are proud to present the following speakers:
Dr. Michele Mosca
|Michele Mosca is a Founder of the Institute for Quantum Computing at the University of Waterloo, a founding member of Perimeter Institute, and Special Cyber Security Advisor at the Global Risk Institute, with a doctorate from Oxford. He is globally recognized for his drive to help academia, industry and government prepare our cyber-systems to be safe in an era with quantum computers. He was a Founder of the ETSI-IQC workshop series in Quantum-Safe Cryptography. He co-founded evolutionQ Inc. to provide services and products that enable organizations to evolve their quantum-vulnerable systems and practices to ones designed to be quantum-safe. Awards include Canada’s Top 40 Under 40, Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal, and Fr. Norm Choate C.R. Lifetime Achievement Award.
|Brian LaMacchia is a Microsoft Corporation Distinguished Engineer and heads the Security and Cryptography team within Microsoft Research (MSR). His team’s current project is the development of quantum-resistant public-key cryptographic algorithms. Additionally, Brian is an Adjunct Associate Professor in the School of Informatics and Computing at Indiana University, an Affiliate Faculty member of the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Washington, and currently serves as Treasurer of the International Association for Cryptologic Research (IACR). Brian received S.B., S.M., and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from MIT in 1990, 1991, and 1996, respectively.
Prof. Marcos Simplicio Jr.
|Prof. Marcos Simplicio Jr. received his master degree from École Centrale Paris, France, and his PhD from the Universidade de São Paulo (USP), Brazil. He is currently an associate professor and researcher at the Department of Computer Engineering at USP. His main research interests are related to cryptography and cyber-security, including the design and analysis of security solutions.
Dr. Harsh Kupwade-Patil
|Dr. Harsh Kupwade-Patil is a Sr. Staff Research Engineer (IoT Security) at LG Electronics Mobile Research. Prior to joining LG, he was the director of research at Nanthealth Inc. Previously, he was involved in collaborative research work with Cisco Systems Inc., Sipera Systems (acquired by Avaya Inc.) and Bell-labs, Alcatel-Lucent. He has prosecuted and litigated patents during his stint at Fish & Richardson P.C. He holds a Master’s Degree in Electrical Engineering and a Ph.D. in Applied Science from Southern Methodist University, Dallas, Texas. He is the author of the book titled “Security for Wireless Sensor Networks using Identity-based Cryptography.
Dr. Thorsten Groetker
|As CTO of Utimaco, Thorsten Groetker shares responsibility for technological strategy and R&D operations. He joined Utimaco after 16 years with Synopsys, Inc., where he served in a range of engineering management positions. Groetker earned a doctorate degree (SCL) in electrical engineering from Aachen University of Technology (RWTH). He co-authored “System Design with SystemC” and “The Developer’s Guide to Debugging”.
Abstract: In his presentation Thorsten will cover post-quantum cryptography-related activities at Utimaco. In addition to addressing technology platforms, we will describe different engagement models for development and certification.
